From check-in to check-out there's nothing that compares to the service and staff of The View. Their attention to detail and willingness to make our stay memorable is second to none. Gergios is the classiest restaurant with the best menu EVER! I've been fortunate enough to travel around the world, but it's true there's no place like home and being... More

The Hotel does not have the best drive through before reaching your destiny but once there it is it is great. We had a stunning view from our room which is worth the early rise on a sunny day. The staff at the hotel are very attentive and helpful especially Ashley at reception. The dinner service was not consistent and... More

I stayed here with a mate for a weekend away. Im really fussy about cleanliness so decided to pay the R1100 a night. On arrival, the hotel is firstly nowhere near the beach and the view of the ocean is in the distance. The staff are fantastic, friendly and very accomodating. Another plus is the restaurant here - excellent food,... More

The view boutique offer both business men/women and holiday makes the sence of class, warmth and sorenity. With great prompt service and well presented rooms, food and facilities... For a memorable experience not just from the hotel and spa, the food at Georgio's resterant is to die for.

The establishment has a 5* Guest House rating from TGCSA. This is important to note if you have been to 5 * hotels (boutique or otherwise) you may have different expectations. It is a large Guest house laid out on multiple levels against a hilly terrain giving it really great distant views of the ocean. Having been a private home... More

Stayed at The View while in Durban on Business. This is a great boutique hotel with large, well appointed bedrooms, a well equipped gym, a good restaurant, and some great views down to the coast. The staff are friendly and helpful, something highlighted by their willingness to sort out and resolve a mix-up with my booking.

We stayed for two days and found the service curt, inattentive and unbelievably slow. If you are happy to enjoy the view (including a lot of plastic plants) while waiting 2 hours for your meal to arrive then all is well.

I just stayed here for 2 nights - a last minute booking due to a change of plans. I did not see the reviews here until after I booked so was a little nervous. I need not have been concerned. Every member of staff I encountered was courteous, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Young driver "Small" did pick... More
